But now it’s time to leave 2014 behind and start fresh with this new selection.
Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft (Free)
I’ve started playing Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft a few day back and the game got me hooked immediately with its idea. So if you have been playing it until today on your PC on your iPad, the good new is that you can now destroy cards on Android tablets. At the moment Hearthstone only supports tablets with screens that are 6 inches and larger, and there’s no news as to when or if it’s going to land on smartphones, as well.
